My Story

Fumi Nishimoto


Mental Health Therapist

Therapy is writing your own story as we embrace the ‘self as inherently fluid’ and that all individuals are capable of crafting new and empowering stories that include a new sense of self. This is a healing journey, and I'm here to connect with you to explore together the trauma, grief, and other challenging life experiences that prevent you from healing, growing and living the fulfilling life you are seeking.

I wrote my own healing story with support from a narrative therapist and it was an empowering and liberating experience. I have the professional skills and experience to complement your own knowledge and experience, and I look forward to providing you support as you write your own story.

 I specialize in helping individuals, couples, and families with: anxiety, depression, panic disorder, addiction, reintegration from institutionalization, anger expression, grief, loss, relationships, intercultural/interracial issues, immigration & acculturation, identity, women’s wellness, body image, trauma, combat veterans, veterans' families, military sexual trauma, and performance anxiety for athletes.
